Going Through Tough Times of Trials

It’s possible to be going through tough times and have peace in the midst of trials. Jesus taught several things about persevering through trials. The way I succeed is through seeking the Lord through prayer, Bible reading, worshiping, fellowship with friends and through service. As long as I stay connected to the power that will help carry me through tough times, I know that I’ll be OK. How can I know you ask?

John 16:33

I have told you these things, so that in me (Jesus) you may have [perfect] peace and confidence. In the world you have tribulation and trials and distress and frustration; but be of good cheer [take courage; be confident, certain, undaunted]! For I have overcome the world. [I have deprived it of power to harm you and have conquered it for you.]

Being a Christian doesn’t mean that we will not experience difficult times. God has told us the truth, that at times life will be difficult. He has provided to us a way to overcome these tough times, that way is found in following Jesus’ teachings and surrendering our lives to Him. His peace is amazing and His love unmatched. You can rest in trusting that He is working all things for the good. Victory through tough times comes by staying connected to other believers, reading Gods word, trusting God, praying, worshiping and staying free from sins hold through forgiveness.

If you are troubled today, lift your head up and stand strong on the rock of your saviors love for you. He has promised to never leave you.

Prayer:Lord thanks for your promise that you will never leave me or forsake me and that I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Now Lord, strengthen me to endure these tough trials I have been facing everyday.
